Behind the controls of a homemade flight simulator


One of the highlights of Campus Party Brazil, held last month in Sao Paulo, was the Motion FX Beta simulator, developed by Brazilian brothers Gabriel and Joao Pedro Sffair.

Both have studied engineering and created the simulator in their spare time.

Click reporter Gareth Mitchell tried it out at the Campus Party - where it was running a simulation of a fighter jet. By swapping the joystick for a steering wheel it can also run motor racing games. The Sffair brothers are searching for more games to adapt.
